Native Voices at the Autry

Native Voices at the Autry, Call for Scripts: Submissions Due July 1, 2012

Native Voices at the Autry is the nation’s premier Equity theatre company dedicated to the development and production of new works for the stage by Native American and First Nations artists. We accept submissions year-round, but all submissions for the specific event listed below must be received by July 1, 2012.

2nd Annual Short Play Festival
Selected short plays and one-acts will be presented during the Autry National Center’s American Indian Arts Marketplace in Los Angeles. This year’s theme is “Indians in America: Native American Athletes Take the Field,” for which we invite a wide range of short scripts.

Plays can be about professional, student, or amateur sports or athletes, on or off the field. They can be about family members of athletes. They can be about coaches. Plays do not have to be biographical or autobiographical. Use your imagination! Native Voices will be posting interesting stories on Facebook and Pinterest about Native athletes, athletics, families of athletes, coaches, and other supporters. Be sure to visit our page and add your own stories as well!

Selection Process

Short plays and one-acts (5-page min, 16-page max) received by July 1, 2012, will be read and evaluated by a national reading panel composed of Native American theatre artists and community members who will select 6 to 10 plays for the festival based on the creative use of the theme, originality, theatricality, and execution.

Selected plays will be given a staged reading in November 2012, and panel of judges will select the 2012 Award for Excellence in Playwriting, a $1,000 cash prize based on the creative use of the theme, originality, theatricality, execution, and audience response.
